Look Good...Feel Better; New Techniques and Approaches in the New Year
PHILADELPHIA (January 19, 2004) -- Fox Chase Cancer Center will be holding the next Look Good...Feel Better class on February 19 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. for women undergoing chemotherapy. Look Good...Feel Better is a free, national service sponsored by the American Cancer Society in conjunction with the National Cosmetology Association and the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association, that is dedicated to teaching beauty techniques to women with cancer. Look Good...Feel Better helps women restore their confidence and teaches them how to cope with appearance related issues during their treatment.
The Look Good...Feel Better classes are taught by licensed cosmetologists who are specially trained in techniques related to skin care, hair loss and nail care. Through practical, hand-on experience, each participant will learn new ways to apply make-up and how to wear wigs, turbans, or scarves when necessary. Each participant practices these techniques using products donated by the cosmetic industry.
Look Good...Feel Better classes are held monthly, alternating from day to evening sessions every other month. For more information or to request a flyer with future class dates, please call Ellen Herrmann at 215-728-3628. Registration is required for each class.
